We have long been living in a developed and modern society, where science and medicine have stepped forward. But because of the established stereotypes, there is still a widespread belief that a person who is overweight must eat a lot. And that’s exactly what his problem is.
It is especially offensive to hear those people who eat little, but do not lose weight, and sometimes even put on weight at all. And fashionable diets and physical activity don’t help them at all. Maybe it’ll be a discovery for someone. But these people exist. So don’t look at every full person with a judgmental look.
Why is this happening?
It’s all due to a hormonal malfunction that negates all attempts to lose weight. In most cases, this is the result of thyroid dysfunction. And no matter how hard a person tries to get rid of extra pounds, it will always end up equally deplorable.
What’s to be done?
Strange as it may seem, the first thing to do is to take a hormonal status test. And with a ready result to make an appointment to see a competent endocrinologist to draw up a plan for equalization of hormonal status.
Note that even if your hormone levels are at normal levels. That doesn’t mean there’s no problem. The endocrinologist checks not only the deviations of indicators from the norm but also their relationship to each other. Don’t diagnose yourself and don’t even take advice from “connoisseurs” on the Internet. Seek medical attention first.
Symptoms of hormonal failure.
In most cases, the symptoms of hormonal failure appear only in moderate to severe cases.
- Heart rate slowing down.
- Skin dryness.
- Cold limbs.
- Hair breakage.
But unfortunately, 90% of the world’s inhabitants have such non-specific symptoms. That’s why we can’t do without the tests. Don’t fight the symptoms, look for the root cause.
